The Liv-ex Fine Wine 1000 index, the broadest measure of the secondary market, showed a slower decline of 2.1% in June compared to the 2.4% decrease in it experienced in May, the largest drop in seven months. Year-to-date, the index has declined by 6.8%. 

The Liv-ex Fine Wine 100 (the industry benchmark) and the Liv-ex Fine Wine 50 (which tracks the movement of First Growths) also fell in June, recording monthly decreases of 2.9% and 2.4% respectively. These negative movements reflect the market’s cautiousness in light of global economic uncertainty and a distracting En Primeur campaign that fell short of expectations. 

Trade was down both by value and volume in June. The breadth of the market also declined slightly month-on-month, with 1,771 individual labels (LWIN 11s) traded on Liv-ex last month.

All of the Liv-ex 1000 sub-indices are down month-on-month and year-to-date. 

In terms of resilience, the Italy 100 is performing better than the Bordeaux 500, with a year-to-date decrease of 3.4% compared to the Bordeaux 500’s 3.5%. The Bordeaux 500’s decline in June was greater than the previous month’s (1.6% and 1.3% respectively), which raises questions about the impact of a difficult En Primeur campaign on the Bordeaux market. 

Interestingly, the Champagne 50 sub-index recorded the lowest decrease this month, dropping by just 1.2%. However, its year-to-date fall remains significant at 10.3%, placing it just behind the Rhône 100.  

The Rhône 100 experienced a considerable month-on-month decline of 3.1%, which means it is down 15% year-to-date. The Rest of the World 60 recorded a smaller decline this month compared to the previous one, falling by only 1.9%.
